Still Searching for Our Favorite Book

My Students

Hello! Head Start is a program for low income children and families, yet we can always use some extra assistance. Being in a funded program, sometimes the money doesn't stretch as far as you would like it to. In our classroom, we teach 18 three-, four-, and five-year old children.

Our children thrive when they have different activities that expand their thinking.

They are active, fun-loving kids with minds that absorb everything they see and hear. We would love some new materials to aid in expanding their thinking in science, math and reading.

My Project

Our students need more books related to the themes of our lesson plans. Most of our themes last 3-4 weeks, therefore we need a large assortment of books related to those themes.

We are teaching our children kindergarten readiness skills, so these books will give them a head start!

Our children love sitting in the reading area looking at books by their favorite authors.

A world that opens children up to reading books is a world we believe every child should live in. By helping us fund this project, we can hopefully give children this opportunity. We appreciate your generosity!
